Box, Fear And Bait.

In her state speech Gov. Hassan outlined $80 million dollars of new spending on the assumption that the casino legislation passes including construction of a new women’s prison to replace the aging facility at Goffstown.

Now according to the media the new Governor is warning that cuts will have to be made if the casino legislation fails.

How can something that hasn’t even been built be considered a cut?

This is yet another reason why this legislation needs to fail.

I’ve studied the implementation of expanded casino legislation and license granting in places like Pennsylvania and even Kansas and these states didn’t go through ¼ of the political and fear based garbage of what is going on in this state.

Something is seriously wrong here.
